    This will be the problem. GTK2 is in /usr/local

    OK, I did this with the appropriate substitution, and got:

    aclocal: /usr/local/share/aclocal/libxml.m4: 10: duplicated macro
    aclocal: /usr/local/share/aclocal/libxml.m4: 204: duplicated macro

    which seemed to stop it dead.

    I still know nothing about the build system...
